by Glyn Maxwell
directed by Karen Lordi-Kirkham
Fyodor Dostoevsky in 1866, in serious debt, addicted to roulette and rejected by several women, spun these sad materials into ‘The Gambler’, a brilliant tragicomic novella written in a feverish few weeks to stave off ruin. Olivier-nominated playwright Glyn Maxwell recreates the madness and mayhem of a world enthralled by chance, sex and money, a world without values or foundations, spinning out of control.
